After the Court restored this case to the calendar for re argument, the SG filed an amicus brief. Resps and other amici filed briefs and directed many of their arguments to the SG ' s brief. The SG now moves for special leave to file a reply brief as amicus so that he might address those arguments. He recognizes that Rule 36.5 of this Court's Rules disallows such filings but contends that the importance of the Fourth Amendment issue presented and the United States' substantial interest warrant an exception.
